New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was furious.
Ocasio-Cortez was under fire and was not about to back down.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez exploded after being accused of this massive political crime.
Republicans defeated New York Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney and flipped his seat red.
Maloney’s defeat stood out because Maloney served as the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chairman.
That marked the first time either party’s congressional campaign committee chairman lost re-election since 1992.
Speaking to reporters after conceding defeat Maloney accused Ocasio-Cortez of committing the cardinal sin of abandoning her party in the heat of the campaign.
“The last time I ran into A.O.C., we were beating her endorsed candidate two to one in a primary, and I didn’t see her one minute of these midterms helping our House majority,” Maloney declared.
There is clearly bad blood between Maloney and Ocasio-Cortez over the fact that Maloney defeated one of Ocasio-Cortez’s closest allies in a primary after redistricting forced the two into an incumbent-versus-incumbent race.
Ocasio-Cortez caught wind of Maloney’s comments and immediately fired back at Maloney on social media claiming that she paid $250,000 in dues to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and that she traveled the country to help elect Democrats.
“Let’s make something crystal clear: SPM [Maloney] courted me for donations to swing races & it was the 1st thing I did this term. Over a quarter million for Dems this cycle, DCCC facilitated some & now he denies it. If he isn’t aware of my visit to CA & efforts we put in, that’s on him,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote. “Because of Dem party abandonment in key areas, statewide victories depended HEAVILY on driving up numbers in progressive areas like mine & @nywfp.”
Maloney was one of four incumbent House Democrats that lost their seats to Republicans.
Ocasio-Cortez noted that she was the only Democrat in a non-competitive race to run a get-out-the-vote operation to try and boost her fellow Democrats.
“To our knowledge, I was the only NYC House Dem in a safe seat to run a full-throated heavy field operation for GOTV,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.
Ocasio-Cortez twisted the knife mocking Maloney as part of the establishment that looked down their noses at members of Congress like Ocasio-Cortez that the leadership thinks are just performers.
“As for him ‘not seeing me’… perhaps it’s because he as a party leader chose not to see nor value prominent members of his party for years. Either way, we will continue to organize & turn out undervalued + unseen communities in this country – whether the powerful like it or not,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.
“Lastly, many moderate dems + leaders made it very clear that our help was not welcome nor wanted. Despite our many, many offers. Yet found ways to try to help from afar. So for them to blame us for respecting their approach in their districts is laughable. Take some ownership,” Ocasio-Cortez sneered.
